The War Axe of the Night is an Axe crafted from Demonite Bars. It is stronger than the Gold and Platinum Axe, but weaker than the Meteor Hamaxe. It has a Crimtane counterpart, the Blood Lust Cluster, which is stronger but also slightly slower. Like all axes, it is used to cut down trees, cacti and giant glowing mushrooms.

Despite having a higher base damage and autoswing, its slow speed means that the maximum damage output is similar to manual-swing swords such as the Gold and Platinum Broadsword, and especially less than the Light's Bane. It can serve as a good backup weapon for ranged characters.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The character will not turn around unless the swing animation stops. Hence while autoswinging they cannot turn around, even if they move in the opposite direction. Should a player be attacked from behind, they should stop by letting go as the animation finishes.
  • When hitting an enemy behind you with the war axe, the knockback will pull them toward you.
